Music and Social Change online event, August 2021
In collaboration with Books Arts Music Collective, we hosted an online event, Music and Social Change, focusing on how community members can use music to invoke socio-political change and advocate for causes dear to them.
The event featured historical and contemporary perspectives of people using music to change the world.
Music educator and Bandology staff member Sandy Wright covered how music has been used to change the fabric of society. Participants learned about the history of protest music and enjoyed musical performances that local musical artists have used to invoke change in their communities.
